The North Dakota Education Association has merged with the North Dakota Public Employees Association to form a new organization – dubbed “North Dakota United.”
"We have members in every community in the state of North Dakota," said ND United president Nick Archuleta. "We have snowplow drivers, we have mental health workers, we have social workers, and of course teachers."
Archuleta says the new union has 10-thousand members. That number includes 800 faculty and staff in the North Dakota University System.
